Friday Freakout: Crunch! 60 MPH Parachute Collision

Friday Freakout: Crunch! 60 MPH Parachute Collisio...

At 60 MPH (about 100 km/h), the crunching sound of this gnarly parachute collision is like watching a car crash… minus the airbags and bumpers. I’m sure both of these skydivers wish they’d tracked just a little bit further apart for more separation. Remember to keep your head up, eyes open, and cover yourself with... Watch Video »
Swooping A Reserve... Like A Boss!

Swooping A Reserve... Like A Boss!

If you’re gonna swoop your reserve, this is the view you want to have and this the parachute you want to do it with. PD rules, and so does this guy. Like a boss! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Stuffs Parachute Down Chest After Pilot Chute In Tow Malfunction!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Stuffs Parachute Down Ch...

A reserve ride after a pilot chute in tow turns into a sketchy two-out scenario, leaving this skydiver to think quickly: land the two-out, cutaway the main, or… stuff the inflating main parachute down his chest strap to keep it put? He opts for the latter! Now, let’s play some trivia. With a pilot chute... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 2 Skydivers Knocked Out From Collision, Saved By Cypres!

This situation escalates quickly, from a simple angle jump to two skydivers being knocked out in freefall. The girl in the white jumpsuit loses control and hits another skydiver in the back of the head/neck. She gets knocked out for the duration of the jump and is saved by her Cypres. The “victim” also gets... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Step-Through Reserve = Double WTF Malfunction!

Friday Freakout: Step-Through Reserve = Double WTF...

When you’re dealing with a spinning malfunction in your wingsuit, the last thing you want (or expect) is a step-through on your reserve once you cutaway. But, hey, there’s a first time for everything. He also probably could’ve done without the backflip through the risers to try and clear the step-through. At least his rigger... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Freak Accident Leads To Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Freak Accident Leads To Cutaway

Guru Khalsa is the victim of a freak accident. The excess brake line gets tangled with his slider stow ball, causing a fast spin and eventually a cutaway. Releasing the right toggle may have fixed the problem, but who knows. At least he’s alive and he found out his reserve works. More importantly, he’s really... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Cutaway At 1,000 ft + Reserve Line Twists. Balls!

Friday Freakout: Cutaway At 1,000 ft + Reserve Lin...

Having a low cutaway around 1,000 feet is never fun, neither is having 6 solid line twists on your reserve. Good thing he had a Skyhook and could clear those line twists by 500ft. Which would you prefer: get stable before deploying your reserve or line twists on an open/flying reserve? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Dirty Low AAD Fire & Tree Landing

Friday Freakout: Dirty Low AAD Fire & Tree Landing

Whooooaaaa Nelly. This is intense! Ben chops a tension knot, doesn’t have an RSL, and can’t find his reserve handle. Luckily his AAD gets his reserve out just in time to save him from the earth… AND he lands without injury despite landing in a tree. WHEW. When it doubt, whip it out. Glad you’re... Watch Video »

In Soviet Russia, underwear soils you! From what I understand from this incident, her cutaway handle wouldn’t chop so she had to run her fingers up the cable housing to manually pull the cutaway cables. Without an AAD, she manages to deploy the reserve only a few seconds before impacting terra firma, and then lands... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Malfunction, Can't Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Malfunction, Can't Cutaw...

If there’s anything worse than trying to kick out of spinning line twists while in the confines of a wingsuit, it’s not being able to cutaway when you need to. At all. Not quite sure exactly what happened here, but the end result is a two-out and a happy landing. Watch Video »

Thermals are a paraglider’s wet dream. That is until your paraglider goes boom! Then that wet dream turns into wet underwear faster than you can say “oh shiiiii…” As the ground rush intensifies, the video cuts out — he didn’t think his GoPro was on, so he thought he was turning it on to film...

Friday Freakout: Premature AAD, Two-Out, Water Lan...

Having your Vigil fire prematurely, then getting your head stuck between a twist in your reserve risers and not being able to see what’s happening behind you, followed by a water landing kinda sucks. Definitely not the best way to start off your weekend. My advice: buy a case of beer, get a re-pack, and... More »
Friday Freakout: 2 Parachutes, 1 Nasty Mess.

Friday Freakout: 2 Parachutes, 1 Nasty Mess.

Getting a leg wrapped up in your riser during deployment is definitely up there on the “ooooohhh fuuuucckk” list. Lets just say that the six-hundred-and-something square feet of trailing fabric probably wasn’t making this guy feel all warm and fuzzy inside — but a clean pair of underwear sure would.

Friday Freakout: First Cutaway... F*CK YOU Line Ov...

Here’s a parachute malfunction without the “freakout.” A line over can really mess up your day (or was that a tension knot?), but Johnny Nashville Havron seems pretty cool about the situation — especially considering this might be his first cutaway. He fights it. He gives it the one-finger salute. He fights it some more.... Watch Video »

When you see 15 other parachutes opening, maybe it’s time to pull. Just a suggestion. Back tracking for 25 seconds and no alti check?? I call brain malfunction on this one, or maybe he just fell asleep, but he just keeps tracking on. And on. And on. All the way down to nearly 750ft, resulting... Watch Video »

Cutting away from line twists: 1 case of beer. Low cutaway: 2 cases of beer. Landing in a vineyard under a spinning reserve and living to post the video on ILS: Priceless. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bridle Wrap. Bag Lock. Oh F*CK!

Friday Freakout: Bridle Wrap. Bag Lock. Oh F*CK!

Reaching around in a wingsuit to pull your pin when your bridle is wrapped around your hackey is a bit of a joy-killer. As is the resulting bag lock. Luckily for Walker Mackey his reserve plays nice and comes out clean. Bet that brought a smile to his face! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Reserve Malfunction? Rip It Out... Literally!

Friday Freakout: Reserve Malfunction? Rip It Out.....

Whether you’re a skydiver or BASE jumper, PCA (Pilot Chute Assist) deployments can be fun. But it kinda sucks when you have to manually extract your reserve because it’s stuck in the container. I think the silver lining is that he was already on his back, which made it easier to spot the malfunction and... Watch Video »

What NOT to do while skydiving: Jump with a tandem as a new jumper. Start backflying after the tandem has deployed at 5,000ft. Go for the dock no matter what the altitude. Fly over the top of your mate at 2,000ft. Ignore your altimeter at 1,800ft. Take the time to wave off (to who!?) at... Watch Video »

“Hmmm. I’m sure there’s something I’m meant to do in this situation? Arch harder? No, that’s not it. Something to do with ET? No, wait, EP… that’s it!” This guy is a model student, right up until his d-bag is bouncing around unopened and he forgets anything about Emergency Procedures. Oops. Almost 8 seconds later,...
